James Bond D'elphen SF

Male Skewbald 2 years old

General comments

This superb colt who has a name to live up to, James Bond (already nicknamed 007 of course!), was born on the 24th of May 2019. He’s the full brother to the pretty Iris U Morinda. He was ‘created’ by the Morinda stud, but ended up carrying the affix ‘d’Elphen’ (the owners of his mother) before being finally bought by us.


James Bond has plenty of energy, but like all of Ulyss’s offspsring, he has a happy character and is very close to people. This is a good thing as he’s destined to become a stallion. In fact, this handsome colt has tested HOMOZYGOUS for the Tobiano gene. His future offspring will be 100% Pies.


For the moment, baby 007 is being allowed to peacefully grow and have fun with the other young colts of his age.

Sire : Ulyss Morinda SF

His father Ulyss Morinda, 5 *at the CIRALE, comes from base bloodline that was marked 8 out of 10 by the Selle Français studbook. The line goes back to the Grand Prix mare Utricule (by Monceaux,TB) and then to her daughter Piperazine Laleu, mother of several excellent horses. Ulyss is a carrier of 5 Thoroughbred blood lines, one of which is the famous Laudanum but there’s also Ladykiller, Furioso, Pericles and Monceaux. As a maternal grandfather he also has JALISCO B whom he very much resembles. You can go to his page to see the details of his wonderful bloodline and photos and videos of his performances.


Ulyss Morinda, Hunter Champion of France as a six year old came back to his true discipline, the CSO in 2015 as a seven year old. Ridden from now on by Rik Hemeryck (a Belgian), he won the Young Stallions SF Masters for seven year olds (classed as ‘Very Promising’ by the ANSF) and at nine years old, he was already a winner and had been placed in numerous outings in 1.50m classes (CSI 3*). He took part in his first CSI 5* in Rotterdam in June 2017 and his first 1.55m at the end of the year. He is ISO 150 (2017).


In 2018, Ulyss confirmed his quality, at the start of the year being placed in the 3* 1m50 Grand Prix at Bonheiden only half a second behind Daniel Deusser, being placed 7th in the 1m50 Bourg en Bresse Show Jumping (4*) and soaring over the 1m55 course at Maubeuge with an unbelievable casual air. Still ridden by Rik Hemeryck, he was then placed in the 1m60 Grand Prix, and successfully participated in his first Nations’ Cup  (Gijon CSIO 5*) and obtained an ISO 160 in 2018.


In 2019 he continued to make progress : he was placed many times over 1m50 and 1m55, and won the 1m60 Grand Prix in the UK in front of Laura Kraut (see the News section). He also took part in his first 5* Rolex Grand Prix, and proved that he clearly has the capability to jump these courses. He obtained an ISO 163 for 2019, and in 2020, at only 12 years of age, has exceeded 100,000 Euros in winnings.

Dam : Athéna Naf

James Bond’s mother, Athena Naf, is a daughter of Limbo, himself the sire of many high level performance horses, including Visage Van de Olmenhoeve to name just one! 

Second dam : Fazenda

The mother of Athena Naf, Fazenda, is a daughter of Vaillant de Brecey who brings the blood of the Founding Father of the breed Le Tot de Semilly associated with that of the great Rantzau (through his best son, Starter). Fazenda produced JIVARO ACHUARA, ISO 146, who is thus a uterine brother of Athena, as well as another daughter, graded 120.

Third dam : Revione Du Moulin
